One of the books that probably most influenced me in my childhood were The Harry Potter series written by J.K Rowling. My sister was the first to read them, and soon later I began to read them. When I was reading the first book, I was kind a small so I got a bit scared and I stopped reading it. I waited a couple of months to start again. After that I couldn't stop and I've read the 7 of them now, (in english of course). My favourite ones are Harry Potter aqnd the Prisioner of Azkaban,Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.(The third,fourth and last of the series).
Its a story of a boy named Harry. His parents were killed by Lord Voldemort when he was only one year old. He grows up with his aunt,uncle and cousin Dudley(which he dislikes). Harry gets accepted to Hogwarts School of Wichcraft and Wizardy, although his aunt and uncle dont want him to go, he manages to attend thanks to the help of Hagrid, Hogwart's gamekeeper.So the books write about his adventures in Hogwarts and in the magical world with the help of his two best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
These books have been so special for me because on one hand I've read them since I was little and on the other hand all the magic that the books has for itself because the books describe magical things but it also teach valuable lessons of loyalty,friendship and love. Anyway I recommend these books to everyone who loves fantasy and magical adventures. Another thing I love from the book is all the vocabulary and spells invented by J.K Rowling. It's amazing how much imagination that woman has!. Don't get scared because they are too thick, if you are enjoying your reading, it will seem the shortest books ever.
